Travelling with Egypt Air with Umrah Visa.

Hello & Salaam,

We are planning to perform Umrah during Easter holiday. We decided to travel by Egyptair and go to Cairo for five day stopover before going to Jeddah.
I tried to book with Egyptair and I had this coming up

"To All Passengers travelling to Saudi Arabia

Dear EGYPTAIR Guests,

Passengers holding Umrah Visa are not allowed to book their flights through EGYPTAIR.COM or m.Egyptair.com or any EGYPTAIR mobile APPS

EGYPTAIR shall not accept any claim or complain in this regard in violation of the aforementioned policy"

I'm kind of confused as to why we can't travel with Egyptair with Umrah visa? Is there anyone who can help clear this confusions and explain in details?


Thanks in advance.

Nothing you posted says you can't travel with EgyptAir. It says you can't book your travel on line or with an app. It appears you need to call or book in person.

Oops! @Janisj. Forgot to copy and paste that bit.

Here you go:


Dear EGYPTAIR Guests,

Passengers traveling with Hajj, Umrah and visit visa shall strictly follow the following instructions as per Saudi government instructions:

UMRAH TRAVELER
- Passengers holding Umrah Visa are not allowed to book their flights through EGYPTAIR.COM or m.egyptair.com or any EGYPTAIR mobile APPS


EGYPTAIR shall not accept any claim or complain in this regard in violation of the aforementioned policy & procedures and shall accept no legal responsibility in whatsoever nature.


Thanx for the reply.

Nothing in your new post changes the meaning that I can see - I suspect you need to book w/ a live person.

Welcome to Fodors Nmmb. Bandhan1983 hasn't been on the forums in two years.

Have you called EgyptAir . . .
